• Post Soleimani: Military Families Threatened by Jihadist Goons

    Surge Summary: In the aftermath of the U.S. killing of Iranian terror-chief Qassem Soleimani, some American military families are being harassed and threatened by jihadists. Unconscionable!

    The Military Times reports that families of soldiers recently deployed to the Middle East are receiving threatening and “menacing” messages on social media from jihadists.   Some messages even reference kidnapping scenarios.

    The people doing this are sick Soleimani wannabes, who are willing to do anything to defeat and kill the infidel.  The solution is to crush them and their jihadist ideology of death, unless you are prepared for your wife and daughter to wear a burka.  Any volunteers?

    That said, I know how unnerving this can be.  This news reminded me about how shocked I was when I learned that 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammad specifically identified me and a few other evangelical leaders by name in one of his GITMO letters because he saw us as key to U.S. support for Israel.

    [Editor: an associate of mine relayed to me just the other day he knows of a military family who has been encouraged by government officials to remove any outward indicators they are associated with someone serving in our armed forces. These cautions are apparently for their safety against possible backlash in the wake of the Soleimani strike. Again, it’s outrageous those who have likely already sacrificed that the rest of us might be safe – many of whom continue to sacrifice for that same reason — have to trouble themselves with such concerns.

    Pray for America’s men and women in uniform – and for their family members.]
